Composition of Embedded Systems. Scientific and Industrial Issues
Composition of Embedded Systems: Scienti?c and Industrial Issues TheMontereyWorkshopsserieswas initiatedin 1992byDavidHislop withthe purpose of exploring the critical problems associated with cost-effective development of hi- quality software systems. During its 14-year history, the Monterey Workshops have brought together scientists that share a common interest in software development - search serving practical advances in next-generation software-intensive systems. Each year is dedicated to a particular topic of critical importance. In the past years, workshop topics were “Networked Systems: Realization of Reliable Systems on Unreliable N- worked Platforms” (2005 in Laguna Beach, California), "Software Engineering Tools: Compatibility and Integration" (2004 in Vienna), " Engineering for Embedded S- tems: From Requirements to Implementation"(2003 in Chicago), "Radical Innovations of Software and Systems Engineering in the Future" (2002 in Venice), "Engineering Automation for Software Intensive System Integration" (2001 in Monterey). th The 14 Monterey Workshop was held in Paris, France, during October 16–18, 2006. Context of the 2006 Monterey Workshop Distributed real-time embedded (DRE) systems are notoriously hard to design, imp- ment, and validate. The complexity of a typical system found in many critical - plications in civil and military aviation, transportation systems, and medical devices exceeds the capabilities of existing developmentand veri cation technologies. Com- nies spend enormous amounts of time and resources on veri cation and validation of DRE systems they develop and yet, despite their best efforts, hard-to- nd errors show up in deployed products.
